Actor Charlie Sheen is obviously obsessed with his father Martin Sheen’s movie “Apocalypse Now” and has a slogan from the film inked on his chest.
“Two and a Half Men” actor Charlie Sheen, whose sitcom has been shut down for the rest of the season, had the slogan “Death From Above” tattooed onto his chest earlier this week, claiming the phrase symbolizes is own life.
Sheen explained his new ink to radio host Alex Jones, stating, “It’s the banner from the death card that Kilgore (Robert Duvall’s character) is throwing on his victims. But also falling from it is the apple from The Giving Tree. There’s my life. Deal with it.”
Sheen says he can see parts of himself in each character in the movie. The actor said he can relate to his dad’s character Captain Benjamin L. Willard, to Dennis Hopper as the American photojournalist, to Marlon Brando’s Colonel Walter E. Kurtz role.
Sheen quoted Marlon Brando’s character, stating, “‘You have the right to kill me, but you do not have the right to judge me’. Boom. That’s the whole movie. That’s life.”
